Once upon a time, after the arrival of the BMW 3 Series saloon, a short time later it would be followed by the 3 Series Touring estate, then the coupé and, eventually, the convertible.

Now, though, things are different; the 4 Series is BMW’s answer to the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé, being a sleeker, sportier and more luxurious version of the 3 Series saloon. In other words, it's what we used to call the 3 Series Coupé.

The 4 Series has just two doors and features a wider rear end and sharper looks than its close relation. However, it's still pretty practical, comes relatively well equipped and drives very well, making it an excellent all-rounder.

But how does it measure up to its sporty rivals? Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions of the 4 Series, along with our recommendations for which of those trim and engine to choose.

And remember, once you've read our review, head to our deals page for the best 4 Series Coupé prices.

M Sport
M Sport models are easy to spot, thanks to the sporty aerodynamic bodykit, large alloy wheels, LED lights and not-so-subtle ‘M’ badging. They sit on stiffer suspension than the rest of the range, m...View trim
